Be careful when wearing sharp clothing articles like belt buckles and zippers. They will damage your furniture. Be especially cautious when leaning over the crib or dresser. Dust your furniture at least once a week with a lint-free cloth dampened with polish or cleaner. Polish it every four months. Don’t expose your furniture to strong sunlight or extreme changes in temperature or moisture. This can damage or fade its color. Do not place your furniture in front of or over heating or air conditioning vents. Take care when placing plastic materials (placemats, lamp bases, notebooks, etc.) directly on your furniture. Certain plastics have ingredients that may react with and damage the finish. When using a vinyl changing pad, place a protective cloth over your furniture to keep from scratching and damaging the finish. Do not place changing pad belts under the pad, as these can also scratch the finish. Use a felt mat (not plastic) to protect your furniture. Wipe up spills promptly. Water left too long on your furniture will leave white spots on the finish. Urine can cause discoloration. Alcohol, perfume, aftershave and medicines can cause severe and permanent damage. Be very careful when using a vaporizer. Moisture is not good for the finish. Make sure the vapor stream is always aimed away from your furniture. Do not drag objects across the top surface of your furniture. Always lift them to avoid scratching the finish.
